The Cardinals had what seemed to be a pretty safe lead after Jay Feely kicked a 31-yard field goal in the third quarter. Leave it up to Arizona to keep it interesting, though.
A combination of poor offensive line play, a solid Seattle pass rush and Leon Washington’s playmaking ability gave the Seahawks a 16-13 lead early in the fourth quarter.
Arizona would drive back and take the 20-16 lead that their defense would wind up holding on to.
This game had a bit of everything. Timely offense, great defense and impactful special teams play. It is a treat to watch these two teams play, and this could be a candidate for game of the week.
It wasn’t all great for Arizona, though. While there are a few players who should be put on notice, there are also a few things they will have to improve on heading into Week 2.
Highlighted over the next few slides are the winners and losers from the Cardinals' Week 1 victory over Seattle.
